Birthday Cake

Good morning all. I hope you are all staying safe in this sad and
scary time. At least as crafters we can keep ourselves busy.

Next week my sister-in-law will celebrate another birthday, and
this is the card I made for her. It is safe to show you as she
does not look at my blog. 
The lovely stamp set was a 'freebie' during the recent Stampin' Up 
Sale-a-bration. I have rarely bought any S.U. products, but as I was
tired of battling with my very old paper trimmer, I decided to buy a
S.U. trimmer from a demonstrator who lives in our retirement
village. The trimmer is fabulous, and I also bought a few other
products which I love.

A closer look at the pretty image, coloured of course with my
Promarkers. The tiny punched flower covers where I accidently
damaged the corner. I bet there is not one of you who has not
covered a mishap with a butterfly, flower, gem, etc. 😉

No, this butterfly does not hide a blemish - I just wanted to embellish 
inside the card. The matt layer was plain white, coloured with a narrow
border of pink Promarker used in the colouring of the flowers and butterfly.
